With inequality at unprecedented levels, reducing the appalling disparity between the rich and poor is arguably one of the most critical issues facing humankind today. There hasn’t been a major film about the biggest issue of our time. Until now.

Global influencers, cultural icons and social media stars led by Stephen Fry and Deepak Chopra will be sharing Disparity Film and the unifying hashtag #ourdisparity with their social media followers in an urgent call for world leaders to tackle the systemic disparity which blights the world.

In Disparity, film activist Renu Mehta exposes the reality behind the $150bn foreign aid industry. With narration by Sir Ben Kingsley, led by 8 Nobel laureates, an all-star cast from all continents dispel the myths about foreign aid.

Disparity demands a more inclusive, human-centred and progressive foreign aid policies and greater press freedoms.
